@mattyglesias brought to you by Wal-Mart 

If you were scrolling through your twitter feed this morning and happened to click through a link to Matt Ygelsias’ blog, your ears were probably treated to an intrusive audio ad asking you to enter a drawing for a $1000 Wal-Mart gift card.

Now I have no problem with Wal-Mart advetising on Yglesias’ blog, or giving millions of dollars to Yglesias’ employer, the Center for American Progress, or with Wal Mart partnering with CAP to lobby for a health insurance mandate. The owners of firms have every right to exercises their First Amendment rights “to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.”

But then again I don’t work for an organization that believes the Koch brothers are the greatest threat to western civilization as we know it.
